Happy New Year!

January 01, 2021 @ 00:00 By: gordon Category: Current affairs, General

Welcome to 2021!

When I posted my annual greeting message last year, I did not imagine that the year would have gone the way it did. While 2020 definitely had a lot of negatives, there were a few positives that I’m not sure I’d want to give up.

So, here’s to a great 2021! Let’s put 2020 behind us and look forward to much better future! May we all have a safe, healthy and prosperous new year!

Merry Christmas!

So, this is the weirdest Christmas that I’m sure that most of us have experienced. Normally, Christmas is all bells, all the time. This year, the closest I’ve gotten to a handbell is when I helped Jeanette record a solo handbell performance.

Anyways, I hope that you and yours have a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year! May 2021 be much better than the dumpster fire that is 2020.

Remembrance Day

Today we pause to remember the sacrifices made by so many people so that we can live in peace and freedom. This year, which is the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, we cannot gather at the at the places like the National War Memorial because of COVID, but that doesn’t mean we cannot pause and reflect.

To those who have served, I say thank you.

Happy New Year!

We pause today to remember all those who have made the supreme sacrifice in order that we may have peace and freedom.

Thank you seems so inadequate.

Returning to Standard Time. Again.

So, in just over two hours much of Canada starts turning the clocks back an hour because Daylight Saving Time is ending. This means that we’ll have more darkness at the end of the day, see an increase in the injuries and deaths in the next week or so, and we won’t save any more energy or money in the process.

It’s high time that we end the madness and stop changing the clocks. Let’s change to Daylight Saving Time one more time in the spring and then stop messing with the clocks forever. Saskatchewan doesn’t change their clocks and they seem ok. British Columbia, for example, is talking about doing it and I’m confident they’ll be ok. Let’s make the decision as a country to leave the clocks alone. Please.
